Last March, London’s Design Museum announced that it will be launching a major presentation surrounding Stanley Kubrick’s cult-classic movies. Now, the institution reveals installation photos of the comprehensive showcase that spotlights stirring projections on multi-paneled screens, rare props, costumes, and miniature model sets.

Highlights include the complete ensemble of Alex from A Clockwork Orange, the centrifuge structure from 2001 A Space Odyssey, as well as the intricate model maze from The Shining. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a one-point perspective screen installation that projects select movie sequences to emphasize Kubrick’s trademark techniques such as his disorientating camera angles and unbearably slow pans.

Tour the retrospective in the slideshow above and then visit the Design Museum’s website to learn more. “Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition” will be open to the public starting April 26 and conclude on September 15.

Discover one of the most famous ‘conspiracy’ cases around #Kubrick, the reasoning behind the creepy room number ‘237’ in the #TheShining. In a displayed letter, the hotel manager of the Timberline Lodge (the building that inspired the hotel in the film), requested that Kubrick change the original room number from 217 to either 227, 237 or 247. Many believe that this letter might be fake. What do you think? Make your own decision at #StanleyKubrick: The Exhibition from 26 April. — Expect to see the unsettling costumes worn by the Grady twins, Danny’s Apollo jumper, a replica model of the maze, the original typewriter used by Jack Nicholson, Saul Bass’s poster designs, plus a display of multiple manuscripts in different languages which were all typed by an assistant of Kubrick. — Image edited by: @petterscholander — In collaboration with @unioftheartslondon, the official academic partner for Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition. — Exhibition sponsored by @taschen — #discoverkubrick #lovefilm #culturetrip #filmmaking #filmography #cinematography #cinematic #cinephile #stayandwander #exploreeverything #moviescenes #movietime? #saulbass #redrum #room237
